Wednesday I posted a commentary about the need for everyone to know about fracking. That afternoon I heard the following radio broadcast about fracking. The coverage was impressive. Dr. Walter Brasch spoke about the various environmental, cultural, economic and social fall-outs from fracking in Pennsylvania, about which he’s written a book, Fracking Pennsylvania. He also broadcasts weekly from WFTE radio–his show is called “The Frack Report.” Brasch’s work makes clear that fracking is a boom and bust industry, not an economic solution for people and towns in recession.
Here’s a link to the broadcast:
